I think it's working!

Monday, February 17, 2014      2 comments

I'm still frustrated that I can't run. Well, I *could* run, but I know that would just hurt, and set me back even further. So I'm choosing to not run for a few more days. More time on the bike! We went out to breakfast last Saturday. I got ... Read more

Beer Brain

Saturday, February 15, 2014      2 comments

I succumbed to the box of Annie's Mac& Cheese. The kind with the package of cheese sauce, not cheese powder. Hot & gooey, salty & fatty. You're the worst thing on the planet, but sweet Jesus do I love you. I'm pretty pleased with myself: as... Read more

A Glorious Affirmation of Chocolate

Tuesday, February 11, 2014      1 comments

This pleases me:
dark-chocolate-021014.aspx I keep the 70% stuff at work because it's soft and comforting. At home, I'm more inclined to ... Read more

Dodged a Bullet (figuratively)

Tuesday, February 11, 2014      1 comments

Yesterday was just one of those days. I had this gnawing hunger. Eat-everything-in-sight hunger. Hunger that would not be distracted by drinking water or tea or by getting up and walking around. I ended up eating about 2700 calories, well beyond... Read more

Back to Wallowing in Self-Pity

Wednesday, February 05, 2014      5 comments

I was so happy last week that I'd finally kicked that cold. Went for a 6.5K run on Saturday. That may have been too much, and it probably didn't help that I ended up driving 500 miles this weekend instead of doing some easy activity to help my m... Read more

Goodbye, Old Friend

Friday, January 31, 2014      2 comments

From the start, I want the reader to know I am mourning the loss of a trusted piece of equipment. No living creature has come to a tragic end. I've had a Cateye Astrale 8 for what seems like forever. It replaced another Cateye cyclecomputer... Read more

Back in the saddle

Monday, January 27, 2014      5 comments

I went for a ride this afternoon. It's been months since I've ridden anything other than a spin bike. It was just below freezing, which was another reason not to over-do it. A few weeks ago, I had my bike fit to me. It's been more than a d... Read more

I'm Less Crabby Now

Friday, January 24, 2014      6 comments

I made it half-way through a Group Ride class last night. I started feeling light-headed, so I pedaled easily until my heart rate got back to normal and then called it a night. I'm glad I tried. I plan to go to the gym tonight for a swim, and I'... Read more

Extended Whine

Wednesday, January 22, 2014      2 comments

I'm so tired. My coughing kicks in when I lie down. I'm a side sleeper, and I'm resorting to sleeping on my back with my head propped up on pillows. It's not the same. I keep having this delusion I'm going to work out. I even put my gym ba... Read more

Rumors of My Recovery Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Sunday, January 19, 2014      4 comments

I felt great Thursday evening. But when I went to bed, I started coughing. I couldn't sleep, and that really derailed my recovery. I thought I'd be going for a walk on Saturday. I did some work in the garage, did some laundry, and then spent the... Read more

I'm Better Now

Thursday, January 16, 2014      0 comments

I left work at noon today, but I have yet to get in a nap. Since it's already 8:30, there isn't going to a nap. I haven't taken any drugs since late morning, so I guess I'm doing a lot better. I'm a lot less whiny, too. Read more

Humans make plans, and the gods laugh

Wednesday, January 15, 2014      6 comments

I'm still sick. I went to work this morning just to keep from getting too far behind, and then I went home. I finally got the cat off my lap, so I can type. I want to sleep, but I'll do that later. Swam Friday afternoon. I did twelve laps:... Read more

Unamusing Musings

Wednesday, January 08, 2014      2 comments

My goal is to eat about 2000 calories a day. That sounds like a lot, but it's both very do-able and low enough to permit me to lose weight. I used's calorie calculator. I put in both my desired weight (150) and a weight at which I wou... Read more

Dang it, I missed out on pie

Monday, January 06, 2014      4 comments

I'm having a fasting blood draw done tomorrow morning. It's already 8:20 p.m., which means no more food. And I was gonna have some pumpkin pie. Darn it! I went to a Group Step class this evening. I didn't like it. I disliked it enough to no... Read more
